The french tenor Antoine Chenuet is born in a musicians' family. His diploma of singing crowns a complete music's education (horn, writing, musicology) carried out in particular to the CNSM of Paris. He is a prize-winner of the Foundation of Royaumont.

Since some seasons Antoine Chenuet sings in the theaters of Metz, Dijon and Toulon. He(has already held the roles of the XXth century such as Harlekin du Kaiser von Atlantis, the voice of the forge of la Vida breve and Starveling in A Midsummer Night's Dream, but also of more common parts : Remendado of Carmen, Gastone of Traviata, Don Curzio/Basilio of the Wedding of Figaro and Hadji of Lakmé. Offenbach is of course in his repertoire with the Brazilian and Frick in the Vie Parisienne, the Servants of the Tales of Hoffmann, Piquillo of Périchole, and Pâris of Belle Helene. He has already put on the important roles such as the Roméo de Gounod, Ferrando de Cosi fan tutte, Almaviva of the Barber of Seville, The Knight of the Dialogue of the Carmelites. 
Antoine Chenuet is repeatedly hired for the lyric solos of the Small Solemn mass of Rossini and the Missa di Gloria de Puccini, in particular on the scene of the Opera of Montpellier. We were able to hear him also in Stabat Mater, Paukenmesse and Harmoniemesse de Haydn, Lobgesang de Mendelssohn and Requiem of Mozart and Saint-Saëns.
